What is the largest best practice volume size for a NetApp v 8.2.3x  7-Mode volume with an NFS Export?  I know that the OS will support a 72 TB volume but I seem to remember that there was a limit past which one sees performance issues.

We have FAS 3250 filers, and are running VMware 5.1 ESXI soon to be 5.5.x.

The volumes server as SANs for the VMs.
